Hi, so I got a pedigreed Scottish Straight today, and I was super uper excited cause he's a beautiful white kitten. But when it did arrive, I checked everything, his coat, his body, his ears. Upon inspection, his ears are quite dirty, his nails are also dirty and he is quite underweight. He's 5 months old, and he's a sweet thing honestly, quite shy since he's only just getting used to our place. I have a 5 month old kitten myself, and she weighs much heavier and her built is much better than his. I'm not sure whether to address this to the breeder, since the breeder's cattery is reputable around here - I'm kinda scared the breeder will get mad at me cause I am younger than him, like imo, I know my cats and I know how well-taken care of cats look like, and I feel bad that this kitten is super underweight. The cattery is also TICA registered, which is shocking. I mean the kitten looked good in the photos to be fair. The cattery is like 6 hours away from our place and the borders are quite strict due to the pandemic, we would've loved to do a visit but we were iffy about it - my mistake of not doing a visit.
